(RepublicanInformer.com)- Beyoncé is feeling the heat from Monica Lewinsky because of specific lyrics in her number one album from 2013 titled “Partition.”
Beyoncé received criticism earlier this week for allegedly using “ableist” lyrics on her seventh studio album, titled Renaissance, which was released on Friday last week.
The performer said that the words would be modified without delay, but not before Lewinsky interjected with a request of her own for the song to be altered.
While she shared an article from Variety that discussed the announced lyric change,
Lewinsky tweeted, “uhmm, while we’re at it… #Partition.”
Beyoncé’s song “Partition,” which was published in 2013, has the words “He Monica Lewinsky-ed all on my gown,” which is a clear allusion to Lewinsky’s role in the 1998 sex scandal with then-President Bill Clinton. Beyoncé wrote the lyrics to “Partition.”
Despite the fact that she tweeted her desire for the words to be altered, she has not officially contacted Beyoncé’s team with any formal request to do so.
Although Monica Lewinsky uses the words “rap song muse” in her Twitter bio, she has already addressed the lyrics in an article she penned for Vanity Fair in 2014, stating that the allusion should have been intended more at Bill Clinton than at herself.
Lewinsky wrote that Beyoncé’s most recent single gives her a shout-out, Miley Cyrus mentions her in her twerking stage routine, and Eminem raps about her.
“Thank you, Beyoncé, but if we’re going to be verbing this, I believe you meant “Bill Clinton’d all on my gown” rather than “Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown.”
Lewinsky’s point is well taken. Bill is the one that “stains” the gown, not Monica. But, artistically, Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown creates the imagery Beyoncé was “aiming” for.
Perhaps if she wrote that her lover “Bill Clinton’d all on my ‘blue dress?” she would have achieved the desired result without dragging Monica Lewinsky through the mud.
Probably not. Lewinsky has become a fixture in modern political history through her decisions and actions. She has to deal with it.
